Before studying and practicing law, Matt completed his B.A. Honours Specialization in Political Science at Huron University College at the University of Western Ontario. At Huron, he received numerous awards for his academic achievements. He also completed his M.A. in Political Science at the University of Toronto and gained experience working for private and non-profit organizations.
Matt was born and raised in Toronto. He moved to Ottawa to complete his J.D. in Common Law at the University of Ottawa in 2013. Matt and his wife fell in love with Ottawa almost as soon as they arrived, deciding to make the National Capital Region their home moving forward. Their son, Max, was born in Ottawa in September 2016 and Matt welcomed his second child, a baby girl, Taylor, in July 2018.
Outside of the office, Matt enjoys spending time with his family and cheering on the Ottawa Senators and Redblacks. He is an avid skier and loves to take advantage of all the great outdoor and indoor scenes that Ottawa offers, including walking his dog (with apologies to his cat), skating and biking.
